Oracle Primavera Learning Experience
Learning in an organization is not an option—it's a requirement for success. The Oracle
Primavera products optimize the value of knowledge and knowledge sharing within an
enterprise, and their value grows in direct proportion to the knowledge of the people
who use them.

Primavera Training consultants offer a full suite of Primavera classes to help make your
implementation successful. The classes combine theory and practice, with some lecture
and product interaction. Students use hands-on exercises and a case study approach to
reinforce concepts and gain practical experience in using the software.

Primavera training focuses on ensuring that your Primavera users understand their
software thoroughly and know how to optimize their productivity using it. To help them
choose the most effective course sequence, Primavera provides training targeted by
role. Our standard courses can also be customized to fit your business needs.
